Orange Pound cake


Pound cakes are one of the easiest things to bake. It’s one of those cakes you can just whip together and impress people with. You don’t even need a recipe to make one because the recipe lies within the name.

it calls for a pound of flour, a pound of butter a pound of sugar and a pound of eggs. That’s it.If that sounds like a lot of cake, you can cut the ingredients in half — so long as the ratio remains the same, that’s all that matters.

All Purpose  flour 1 1/4 cups 

Softened Butter or olive oil – 1 1/4 cups

Castor sugar 1 1/4 cups

Eggs 4

Baking powder 1 tsp
